I've Had the Tauren of My Life!

I like this holiday and not having to complete it this year made it all the more enjoyable.  This year I can sit back and watch the love rockets and admire all the pink decorations.  It warms the cockles of my beef heart as well as my real-life human heart!

There's also this fun hat I picked up this year.  You can't just put a flower in your mouth and call it a day.  You need to get dressed up real fancy like and hope that Al Pacino asks you to dance! Hoooah!

I hope that you all have a wonderful Love is in the Air day.  If you don't have someone to choo-choo-choose you then feel free to print out this screenshot because Pach will be your Valentine!

Pony Sold Separately

Finally some news!

I tamed Ghostcrawler last night at roughly 8:45 server time!  I had been scouting the Abandoned Reef for the past four days once it was brought to my attention that the zone I was questing in also had a pretty cool pet to tame.  Honestly I had never been so excited to see a yellow dot on my map.  Pretty sure it was just dumb luck that I found him but my strategy was just to roam around a bit and then wait a bit.  Ghostcrawler phases in and out of stealth mode but when he shows up he's like a great beacon of light amongst the dull gray of the Abandoned Reef.  He showed up after I had been waiting in the same spot for about 4 or 5 minutes but your mileage may vary.

If you can survive mighty wallops with his Nerf Bat he's yours! 

 Now I just need to think of a clever name. 

If you've been keeping up with the Waywards, then you know The Zug Initiative has been taking our sweet time through Cataclysm (dungeons and raiding wise).  It's been two months and I only have one level 85 (I blame archaeology).  Last week I was looking at my to-do list achievements and saw that I was only one zone short of Loremaster Cataclysm so off I went. After searching and swimming and seahorsing around (as well as a quick download of QuestCompletist) I finally finished.  Yay, I beat the game!

Okay guys, NOW I'm ready to raid!

Or how's abouts: are you ready to help someone break into comedy???
Well, here's your chance!  My brother, AKA The Blognositfier, has entered into the CBC Comedy Open Mic Comedy Contest.  The participants that get to perform are based on those who get the most votes!  It would be so awesome if you guys went to the page, listened to his bit and voted for him.  (Or, just blindly vote for him, that is completely cool too.)
The voting ends tomorrow at noon AST so please vote for Weh-Ming right now!
Please and Thank you!  Thank you! Thank you!

EDIT:  He tied for first place!  Thanks for voting everyone!  I love you guys.

If you are in the Moncton area next week (i.e. Feb. 8) you should go to the show at the Pump House Brewery.

Happy Lunar New Year!

Leave it to the Druids to make Chinese New Year boring. 


Lunar Festival is so tedious, but you already know that.  Go here, and here, and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here etc.  Spamming fireworks out of obligation for an achievement sort of defeats the purpose of having fun.  But the event is good for two things: collecting many of the new flight paths, of which there are approximately 1 bazillion in Northern Eastern Kingdoms and, the pantsuit - I do love a good pantsuit.


But I'm not here to completely trash Lunar Festival (nor the Druids – mad love to you, Runetotem).  I love that they included Chinese New Year into WoW and since Enhancement Shaman and I couldn't get home to see my family this is a nice way to celebrate.  (And it's really the only way I'm getting and Lucky Red Envelopes these days.)  


I usually like to make the day special for us by cooking a big meal, but this year I'm being selfish and letting the professionals do it.  I love Chinese take away – the deep-fried goodness and salty sweet sauces and those little containers! They make me feel like I'm in a movie. I'm dorky like that.  Just the way eating ice cream out of the container makes me feel like I'm one of the Keaton's and helping Mallory get over a fight with Nick and Alex dealing with his feelings for Lauren.  Only when I do it in front of my family they think it's gross. Humph.


What I'm really trying to say is, HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!  Eat some noodles and dumplings and set off some firecrackers for realsies!  And of course, honour your elders and call your parents!
